All About Duck Wax

Posted: August 20, 2014

Hunting season is almost upon us (click here for information regarding dates) and it is time to start thinking about all things hunting again.
One thing that you may be forgetting, though, is duck wax. If you are a hunter of waterfowl, duck wax is something you may know about. If you don’t know about duck wax you are missing out, keep reading to find out all about it.

How it works

Every waterfowl hunter is faced with the challenge of removing pinfeathers from their game catch. Our duck wax makes this task simple!

To begin the process, you want to first dry pluck as many feathers as possible. Next, heat up a container of water until the temperature reads about 160°F, which is the optimal application temperature for our wax. If the water is boiling it is too hot and will not allow for a nice and even coating of wax. The hot water will melt the wax, which will float on the surface of the water. The ducks should be dipped entirely through the wax, into the water then back up through the wax. This should be done twice.
After the wax hardens you should be able to peel the wax off of the bird. The hardened wax comes off in a “shell” like formation. The hardened wax pulls out all remaining pinfeathers, leaving you with a smooth bird, free of feathers.
Your end product will look like a bird straight from the grocery store, except you did it yourself.
What are you waiting for? Duck wax is the perfect solution to getting those pesky pinfeathers out. Buy your duck wax here.
